laws leave the entire process to the police department and even fewer call for government issued id with the permit application. those that don't require a government id include licenses for charitable solicitations, new photographer, even escorts service. >> >> and it's not ordinary commercial activity but first amendment and the u.s. supreme court held repeatedly where there are restrictions to carry out the first amendment rights should be construed and all reasonable laws are preserved with that, but there is another matter i need to bring to your attention tonight. and that is a week ago today i over nighted to this board and to the police department lawyer on the case a motion for your consideration it to provide a important new fact that arose since this appeal was filed and recently the state of california and san francisco county issued a picture id medical marijuana card for mary, an id that unquestionably meets the ordinance referenced and that you have a government id. however the board's executive director called me the next morning and said she was barred under your
our special guest, lieutenant government gavin newsome. it (applause) at the thank you. >> also represent state mark malone's office tom ammiano. (applause) * >> all will return momentarily, i'm sure. paul henderson, representing mayor ed lee's office. [laughter] >> and to my right, i have the open house, our state association vice president and i'm sure other names, past president san francisco chapter. we have lots of our membership here including a couple of board members, kerry greenberg from fresno. [speaker not understood] is here. we have two representatives from san mateo county, barbara arieta and mike miller. i know people. at this time i'd like to say a few words about the california grand jurors association. it's an all volunteer group, 501(c) (3) dedicated to promoting the participation in the grand jury system, qualifies applicants to be grand jurors, bidthv awareness so we have consumers of the grand jury's product, report. at this point i'd like to turn it over for some lengthy introductions. >> thank you. thank you, keith. welcome, everybody. we're glad to see s
dollar of government spending or how much of the lost dollar of taxes is spent and how quickly it's spent. giving more money to spending increases or tax cuts to lower- income people is more huge effee because they tend to spend a larger share of the difference. infrastructure spending, a lot of that gets spent, but depending on the project, it may get spent somewhat slowly. it can have a high bang for the buck ultimately but not right now. certain projects take a while to get started. infrastructure investment, if devoted to high return projects, can, in fact, have a big effect on the state of the economy. about half of nondefense discretionary spending can be viewed as investments either in physical structures or in people in the form of education and training. not all that money is spent well. but some of it is clearly spent for things that the private sector would not otherwise provide. and some of those projects can then have high rates of return and boost the economy in significant ways over time. i think the -- one concern that people have raised about the cutbacks in discretionary
be in league with another government agency that wants to deport them and that's the problems with 287-g and some of the other information-sharing protocalls. for community policing to work it's hard to have the trust and support of the community. and by the way, if these criminals go unprosecuted in our community and unpenalized for taking advantage of somebody and that not being reported, their next victim could very well be an american. their next victim could be your family. could be my family. and that's why we all have an interest in community policing of law enforcement as well as public health to make sure that people are inoculated and treated early for disease regardless of their status. now, look, the status is not to have this population here illegally. whenever we're talking about this enforcement, yeah, it's tough. there is no right answer. the right answer is comprehensive immigration reform. let's find a way where the people that we need here that have critical jobs in our economy, that have families that are in our community, that have kids that are american and going to
to progressive government itself. we'll talk about smoking out our adversaries. the failure of opposition like today' puny pathetic reaction from the other side. tonight the crazed unequal day we heard in washington. this large but unmistakable declaration of how small has become this right leaning opposition. small, squeaky, and spiteful. i'm joined by amy klobuchar. and chuck todd. a democratic president made this pronouncement about a government in america. >> we have work to give the american people. a smaller, less bureaucratic government in washington. and we have to give the people one that lives within its means. the era of big government is over. >> last night this president barack obama gave a strong role and criticized republicans who say we must balance the budget. take a listen. >> it is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many. and not just the few. over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion. mostly through spending cuts but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of a
and government-planning messages in the history. still more infrastructure, even capping climate change and all i wanted was full fledged tax reform or maybe the keystone pipeline. the left wing greenies pulling out all the stops and warning the president not to go there. some celebrities even got arrested froprotesting the pipee at the white house today. >> and the head of the unions wants more and more of our taxpayer money and he's threatening any democrat who doesn't go along. and guess who facebook executive mark zuckerberg is throwing a political fund-raiser for right at this hours? it's probably not who you think. anyway, we're "the kudlow report." we'll tell you later, but we begin right now. >>> first up, so the president proposing more, more government spending on manufacturing, more on housing, education, infrastructure, climate change, green energy. here's my take. if it was going to work all this throwing more, it's going to work to throw the economy up, it would have already worked. it's more of the same from mr. obama but these government planning efforts have never worked. we have
that put big, big bets. we're lucky we have mit and caltech, but we are not at the country, the government side or the corporate side, putting those investments together and that's what i worry about. we're not investing more into it, when not going to be the ones that read the benefits. >> i think that's the question. is their net, whatever its taking place, in basic technology to support the stuff that you want to do. >> it's the case were lots of research as an economist would put a social -- the private return is insufficient to generate the private sector. and so that's why i think we have to look for more of these types of partnerships between government, industry. so one good example of this is collaboration that the federal government has with the semiconductor industry, where, so simply no amount institutions like bell labs, which created large investments in developing the first transistor, government and industry are now cosponsoring a series of university-based centers of excellence at mit and stanford and berkeley and ucla that our first alternative figure how do we take, as f
. >> president obama believes the government is the solution, more government. >> big government. >> big government. >> big government. >> this is the most progovernment speech since lyndon johnson. >> stephen: yes, i find it offensive that the head of our government would give a speech to everyone else in the government that was so pro-government. [ laughter ] not to mention, the president immediately declared war on the private sector. >> tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one who works full time should have to live in poverty and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. >> >> stephen: $9? that is almost two feet of sandwich. where does it end? where did it end? a living wage spoils the working man. just ask c.e.o. and fox news resident smeagol robert luddy. jim? >> i worked for $85 cents an hour when i was in high school and i was happy to have that job. >> stephen: that's what i'm talking. america has gone soft. if everyone is living the fantasy life of cold and heat they'll have no drive. it's that suffering that lifts people up to start their own
that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. according to polls americans believe government spending and huge debt piling up is a major problem. president obama apparently does not belief that last night in his state of the union address he would not cop to being the biggest spending president in history. no, he now sees himself as an investor. >> every dollar we invest in high quality early childhood education can save more than $7 later on. now if we want to make the best products, we also have to invest in the best ideas. now is not the time to gut these job creating investments and science and innovation. we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care. we will invest in new capabilities. even as we reduce waste and more time spending. we need to make those investments. >> bill: 14 times he mentioned the word invest. mr. obama sounding like a morgan stanley broker. now that's obviously a con. massive government spend something out of control, period. here's the proof. 2002, the year after 9/11 when the federal government was forced to dramatically increase spe
are investing in clean energy instead. >> and the importance of this particular decision the government must make on the xl pipeline in terms of the continuing crisis of climate change in the country and around the world? >> that is the challenge. last year we had record droughts and record wildfires and temperatures a full degree above. the first big test of the president for his commitment to climate change is whether or not we're going to build the pipeline that would take almost 1 million barrels of oil every day, the dirtiest oil on the planet, ship it through the u.s. and have most of it be exported. what we're trying to do is to convince president obama he needs to put his full muscle and full ambition to match the scale of this challenge. not just about the pipeline, but making sure we're turning away from fossil fuels, the most extreme sources of dirty energy everywhere, drilling in the arctic, blowing the tops of our mountains, building this tar sands pipeline -- all of those would deepen and extend our dependence on fossil fuels when clean energy is growing by leaps and bounds. it
government had a surplus. an unprecedented surplus of 236 billion dollars. it would not have happened without jack lew's leadership, knowledge, and expertise. in 2009, he answered the call to public service. he returned to d.c. to become deputy secretary for managing resources. he helped secretary of state clinton transform the state department and honing his skills in the international arena. skills that i'm confident will prove useful as he works to address the economic challenges he will be facing as treasury secretary. jack spent the last few years serving the administration as director of omb and as white house chief of staff. he brought nonsecurity spending to its lowest level since dwight eisenhower sat in the oval office. on the fiscal cliff, he kept taxes low on the middle-class. at the same time, decrease the nation's deficit by more than $700 billion. there are many subjects the treasury secretary must cover. not any treasury nominee can have expertise immediately in all of them. the jack has an uncanny ability to dive into a subject, learn, study, and master it in a factual and no
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
effect next month lemine reduce spending by households in the government. we protect inflation-adjusted gdp will increase by about 1.5% in 2013 but it would increase roughly 1.5 percentage points faster were it not for the fiscal tightening. under current law then, we expect the unemployment rate will stay above 7.5% through next year. that would make 2014 the sixth consecutive year with unemployment so high, the longest such period since the 1930s. we expect the growth of the gdp will pick up after this year to about 3.5% per year in and 2014 in the following few years. the gap between the nations gdp and what it is capable of producing on a sustained basis that economist referred to as potential gdp will still not close quickly. undercurrent while we expect output to remain below its potential level until 2017, nearly a decade after the recession started in december december 2007. the nation has paid and will continue to pay a big price for the recession. we estimate the total loss in output relative to the economy's potential between 2007 and 2017 will be nearly equivalent t
his state of the union address defending big government and demanding even bigger government. this president thinks the only solution to everything is bigger government. and that might be an effective response to a yay big government speech, but instead it seemed like a non sequitur, because this is the speech that senator rubio's comments actually came after. >> it is not a bigger government we need. >> senator rubio also complained with a sarcastic twist that the president needs to put out a medicare plan already. tonight would have been a good night to do that, huh, mr. president. the problem is the president had just put out a medicare plan, a plan he described in the actual state of the union address that he delivered, even if it wasn't the one that played out in marco rubio's head when he wrote his own speech, and then didn't adjust it to reflect reality. mr. rubio also made a big point about placing himself in the american middle class. >> mr. president, i still live in the same working class neighborhood i grew up in. my neighbors aren't millionaires. they're retirees
on the case of the mysterious prisoner x, a man who purportedly had died in this prison. the government has confirmed it jailed a man with dual nationality under a false name. its statement says " a prisoner was an israeli citizen and also had foreign citizenship was jailed for security reasons. prisoner was held under a pseudonym, but his family was notified of the arrest immediately." >> it goes on to say the prisoners' rights were observed at all times but that he was found dead in his cell two years ago. australian tv says this is the man held prisoner. he reportedly held israeli and australian citizenship and used three different names. ben zygier, ben allen, and while in israel, ben alon. he moved to israel in 2000 and had an israeli family and lived in tel aviv. the report says there's evidence to suggest you work for israel's spy agency mossad. for reasons still not clear, he ended up in prison in solitary confinement, in a cell built to hold the man who assassinated israel's prime minister rabin. it was supposed to be a suicide- proof cell. he was found hanged in december 2010. his
europe. the government in paris has accused a firm of knowingly selling horse meat as beef. the company denies that allegation. >> french authorities have been investigating the complex supply chains that ended with be processed meals being tainted with horse meat. so far, the scandal has been treated as an issue of fraud rather than public health, but in britain, officials say a potentially dangerous horse drug might have entered the food chain. >> meanwhile, the scandal has reached germany, too. >> more german supermarkets have pulled products suspected of containing horse meat as the scandal spreads throughout germany. it is still unclear who is responsible. the supply chain stretches across your -- your representative. a luxembourg company ordered beef from a french firm, which passed the order to a trading firm in cyprus. the company subcontracted to a dutch firm. the french media has uncovered what they called troublesome bills of sale. the british environment secretary said the problem was not simply one of public health. >> i think what we got involved in this horse issue is cri
small business and basically how government is getting in our way of growth. melissa: do you think they believed you? how did you make your case? what are they specifically doing that's slowing you down? >> well the big thing is access to capital and the regulations and the policies that they're putting in place but more importantly it's more about the indecisiveness of what the policies will be. they continue to kick the can down the road fo six months to a year and i have no idea what my taxation rate will be next year and i just found out about what it will be this year. and when you talk about the affordable care act, there continues to be waivers, exemptions, changes and differences in the policies that were originally very difficult and cumbersome to understand and now it continues to get more difficult. melissa: one thing that sound certain you will have to pay your workers more. you own and operate 12 franchise units. you have 4 fran chiees. you have mrs. fields famous brand, pretzel maker franchises all kinds of things americans are very familiar with across the country bu
extending the drop. 4.3%. prices dropping to the lowest level in nearly five years, following a government report showing you less than forecasted last week spewing we have mark sebastian and our market panel. kimberly fox. i would like to start with this. don't let a tight range, although the dow was in the 68-point range, but don't let this narrow trading range cloud your vision of what happened. what happened here today? >> you know, we have continued through this trend. it is no longer by the market. you have to be smart about compilations, tons of action out there in individual equity. hopefully getting smoked today, if you are a good equity kicker, smart about the stocks that you buy, you will do great. if you're bad, you will lose. this is something we haven't seen since the financial crisis of 2008. the great time for the rest of 2013. except a nice tone for how traders should approach trading. you cannot just say that the stock market will go up because the s&p is coming around. there are stocks moving within the s&p 500. >> let's talk about gold. for while you couldn't lose. but
other republican women think about running for office. >> i see government as a tool to be able to help people. >> now i have an opportunity to join them to carry the torch for future generations for women and their families. >> hello, i'm bonnie erbe on capitol hill for this special edition of "to the contrary." there are a record number of women are serving in the 113th congress. twenty in the senate, 78 in the house. the 25% of the women serving in this session of congress are freshmen. this week we introduce you to some of them. >> i ran in 2006 because of my concerns of how our service members returning home from iraq and afghanistan were being treated. >> she didn't win in 2006. later me started working for the department of veterans affairs under president obama. but, duckworth decided to run again in 2012. >> and then when the wave happened in 2010, we had a lot of tea party congressmen who were elected, including the one who represented me who simply refused to do their jobs as congressmen and were very much ideologically driven as opposed to driven by the need to serve the con
produced in our economy is taken by the federal government. he didn't say any of this. he didn't say any of this because it's embarrassing, it's a disaster and here is the problem. the reason why he doesn't take responsibility for this is before you can even hold him to account, he's proposing more programs, more trusts, more partnerships, more agencies, more spending, and so you can't keep up with the guy. so, for him, america is a problem. the free enterprise system is pa problem. the american people are a problem. he streets us like we're france. and what one of the things that bothers me most, sean is this. this is a copy of the constitution. this is a bible. obama put his hand on this, and swore to uphold this, and then he keeps saying, as he did last night, to congress, if you don't do what i want you to do i'm going to act on my own. i hate to tell him this, it's not a dictator, or imperial president. we have three branches of the government and he has to work with all of them, but he doesn't want it. >> sean: i've used the term imperial president and you've used it. in your book,
community, or i have access to information from the federal government through law enforcement and through open source and closed source data, events that have happened. we all know about the 93 bombing at the trade center. but if you look down this list, you will begin to see, in the years 2004, or 5, 6, 8, 10 and 11, that the transit entities in the world have become more significant targets. >> we have concerned and larger events and at the end of the day we will have people in the park and people shopping in stores and tourists coming to the building and many of features have something other than a event, this is an all-hazard event management strategy. you are probably going to be one of the most if not the most significant transit in the united states, east of or excuse me, west of the mississippi, what does that mean? >> well, there are a series of government agency and design responses. and i think that what is significant to note, is that starting in 1996, which is really not that long ago, the process of the government of the united states becoming more and more involved in devel
with the government, through laws, initiative and administrative acts. >> no laws, no initiatives, no administrative acts will perfectly solve all the challenges i've outlined tonight. but we were never sent here to be perfect. >> jon: you are (bleep) killing me. you are killing me! no one is expecting perfection just, you know, expecting that through coordinating effort we can lower the unsafe bridge count in this country. [ laughter ] to four figure territory. 9,000, 8,000. i get we're not perfect. how do we start? >> every day we should ask ourselves three questions as a nation. >> jon: all right, let me try. stop me if you've heard this one before. which of the 70,000 bridges are near my house? [laughter] number two, are the tunnels okay? [laughter] and number three, how did he meet their mother because if it's something like in a bar or on a j-date i'm going be ano, id because i put eight years into this (bleep). if they come out with i woke up and there she was, no. so -- my lips are just so -- it's so hot in here. i'm sweating and eating saltines. you would think as a veteran of television pr
. basically, congressman, you are right. if the government is paying people to build battle shilps or structures, those will have comparable affects, dollar for dollar. but economy and on the output of jobs. >> you can watch all of this hearing on c-span 2 or any time at the c-span video library at c-span.org. for more white house if of staff jack lew is the nominee to be treasury secretary. at his senate confirmation hearing, he was asked questions about his tenure at citigroup and his cayman islands investment. this finance committee is three hours and 20 minutes. >> this meeting will come to order. before we begin, i want to recognize new members to the senate finance committee. secretary brown, senator bennett, senator robert portman , senator bob casey. welcome. we are honored to have you. you'll find the tradition of this committee is one that is very proud to work together. i'm happy that you are here with us to help move that tradition forward at a greater and deeper rate. we deeply appreciate it. less than two miles from where we sit today at the entrance of u.s. treasury
because the government itself is a consistent obstacle. the national federation of independent businesses recently released figures from december indicating the mood of businesses is at a recession level. 70% of business owners that were surveyed identified the current environment as a bad time to expand and political uncertainty topped the list for the reasons not to attempt economic growth. lee, a resident of muskogee, oklahoma, and president of acme corporation, said a lot of small businesses had to go in debt to stay afloat. he said now they can't make the money they need to to pay down debts due in large part the environment the government has created. i joined a small group of members in congress. i have faced unprecedented difficulties ensuring my business succeeded. i step on the floor of the united states house of representatives with a firsthand understanding how high the hurdles are for a business to succeed and just simply jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the
to the average person? why does a huge government debt impact businesses? >> at the end of the day, the issue is there's so much debt on the government's balance sheet that we have to cut back on spending as well as stimulus, and when you think about the dollars injected into the system, some of that will be cut back as well. that's the concern in terms of it doesn't have a question mark on the consumer and put a question mark on how much investment is put forth. >> they are already connecting the dots saying somebody has to pay for a someday, me or my customer. interesting that 68% of u.s. ceos say building a skilled work force should be the government's top prior pickups. what is the government going to do about it? >> they don't see the long term skill set creation to ensure stainability, and literacy or lack thereof, the big k-12 grades are the challenge. how much do i have to continue to invest to supplement what basic education and schools system, should be doing today? >> they are looking at what they have to do to fix the problem themselves? >> yeah, companies think, listen, i'm think
up, but first, risky federal programs. by that i mean a new report by the government accountability of this unveiling the 30 federal programs and operations that3 have the highest risk for race, fraud and abuse, six of which have been the lowest ever since it was first released in 1990. with more on this demand editorial board member of the wall street journal. my question was, only 30? >> that's right. this is only the latest lesson. if you go over the reports from the last ten years are so you're going to find literally hundreds of programs that have been on the watch. by the way, i go back to the early 1980's when you have the famous reports of the regular administration that found huge events of ways, many programs still exist, and the reason i think this story is important is we are coming very close to this point where we are going to have these automatic across-the-board cuts of about five or 6 percent in his domestic programs. the agency heads will say we can't take these cuts. it will require, you know, cuts of valuable services, and vatican support for the american people
to do with chuck hagel who wasn't in the government at that time. well, today republican threats to take the unprecedented step of blocking a presidential cabinet appointment came to fruition, if you will. democrats moved forward with a procedural vote to end debate and pave the way for a final up and down vote. then it failed. it failed to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster. so -- and this just happened. where does hagel's nomination go from here and what are the republicans really up to here in delaying the vote? claire mccaskill is a democratic senator from missouri. thank you, senator. kelly o'donnell. let me tell you this, i want to ask you, why are they doing this? why are they holding up a cabinet appointment at the highest 4re68, defense secretary in why are the republicans doing this? >> i talked to republicans about this today. they made it clear there are really two tracks. for some of them it is about chuck hague 'em, his qualifications, his past statements, wanting to know more. wanting the members of the snit who didn't get to ask him questions to review the m
